All components of this system have been designed to meet the rough field conditions that exist for most projects. Mounting the system on the tripod allows the entire assembly to be quickly moved around in rough ground conditions so that the wireless signal is optimized.
- Generates both wireless and wired Local Area Networks (LANs)
- Battery powered for easy placement between PC and STS4 Nodes in field
- Supports up to 128 STS4 Nodes
- Optional support for STS4 Automatic Load Position Tracker (ALPT)
- Multiple STS4-WBS units can be linked for larger projects.
